The 2011 Buick LaCrosse offers Columbia, South Carolina shoppers a host of features designed to comfort, inform, and entertain both the driver and the passengers. From the available touchscreen navigation system to the optional 11-speaker Harman Kardon 5.1 Matrix surround sound system, LaCrosse is designed to be a delight no matter what seat you occupy.
Buick’s Design Philosophy of uninterrupted, flowing lines continues inside the sculpted LaCrosse interior. The ice-blue ambient lighting is designed to welcome you and provide a calming sensation, while highly crafted, premium materials like contrasting French-seam stitching, smoked chrome accents and dark poplar wood grain appliqués surround you in style. Available heated leather-appointed seats and a heated steering wheel feel wonderful during a cold Columbia winter, while the available power rear sunshade and ventilated seats provide relief during the searing summer heat that until a few years ago was only available in luxury sedans costing thousands more. And the soft-touch instrument panel with real stitching not only provides a tactile feel, but its “low and away” design gives the cabin a sense of openness to make the spacious interior feel even more so.
QuietTuning Reduces Columbia’s Road Noise in Buick LaCrosse
Buick’s famed QuietTuning process is designed to absorb, block, and reduce noise from outside the passenger cabin, all in an effort to make LaCrosse an acoustic haven. The laminated windshield, triple door seals, minute body panel tolerances and other acoustical technologies combine to cut out most road and wind noise, so then you can hear the optional Harman Kardon® 5.1 Matrix surround sound system and its 11 speakers pumping out 384 watts of your favorite tunes, available as part of the Entertainment Package that comes standard on CXS models and is optional on CX and CXL models. The Entertainment Package also includes a USB port to connect your iPod or MP3 player, allowing you to control playback through the audio controls on the dashboard or steering wheel. LaCrosse also offers an optional hard drive packing 40GB of navigation power and music storing capacity for thousands of songs. Much like your home DVR, you can pause and replay live radio. If you’re listening to a game on XM Satellite Radio (which is standard for three months) and your cell phone rings, you can hit pause, take your call, and resume right where you left off.
To entertain passengers riding in the spacious back seat, the LaCrosse offers integrated dual rear seatback-mounted DVD screens with available companion wireless headphones. Each screen allows you to connect a separate video input, allowing one passenger to enjoy a DVD while the other plays a video game. To help power auxiliary items, a 120-volt household power outlet is included as part of the optional Entertainment Package.
Now standard for 2011 models is a six-month trial of OnStar service with Turn-By-Turn Navigation. Even on LaCrosse models not equipped with touchscreen navigation, a press of the blue OnStar button will connect you with an advisor that can download directions to your car to display on the center console and driver information center. It’s a feature you’re bound to love on your new LaCrosse after just a few trips!
